A Monty Python view of the authorship question, by Eric Idle

Over the past months I’ve read dozens of pieces about the authorship question and although many of them have been very much worth reading, this article from the New Yorker is the only one that has made me laugh. The wonderful Eric Idle knows a thing or two about creativity and imagination and has turned his attention to the issue in his own inimitable fashion. I’d love to know what the whole Monty Python team would have made of it all.

    What a great way to start the day! Has got me wondering if Shakespeare had a lizard in his water closet?!

  2. Love it. 🙂 Pity the Python team did not make a film along the lines of Life of Brian/Monty Python and the Holy Grail…:) . Would have been hilarious. 🙂

  3. At last! Something intellegent on the whole : Was Shakespeare a fraud issue. Thank you Eric – you are a scholar and a gentleman. – and very funny indeed. Let the last word be yours.

    Thank you, at last something on this issue that makes sense, and gives us a good laugh into the bargain.
